A student, Zain Qaiser, had posted a lot of advertisments in pornograpghy websites which were widely spread in the major pornograpghy websites in the UK. When someone clicks on the advertisement a person would be directed to a ransomware link if the computer’s security is not protected by up-to-date anti virus.The ransomware appeared in the form of an FBI warning which stated that unless the payment(100-200 pounds) is made, the computer won't unlock itself and that the user would have to serve a jail sentence of 2-3 years.

This was deemed as the second most notorious cyber crime in UK. The student had made approximately around 4 million euros through this.
